I am not good with words when it comes to talking about tragedy…there are no words to describe the feeling we all get when we remember 9/11/01 and you can’t remember and talk about it without crying. I know none of us will ever forget where we were when we heard about what happened, especially if you are from New York or where in NY at the time. All of our lives have changed since then and it’s still hard to remember and move on from it. When Osama Bin Laden was finally captured and killed I think it was somewhat of closure for us all but still…nothing can ever make you accept it and move on from what happened. Regardless if it’s 10 years or 30 years later. We will all always live in fear. The tragedy changed the world, changed how people view one another, how we travel and how we live. It changed drastically for the lives of Muslim Americans who are still dealing with the aftermath and of the ignorance and stereotypes. We will never forget, I pray for the families that lost their loved ones, I pray for the lost ones who are now America’s angels. I pray for the world and I pray for evil to leave us all.
I am already getting choked up typing this, so I’ll end it here.
“Time is passing. Yet, for the United States of America, there will be no forgetting September the 11th. We will remember every rescuer who died in honor. We will remember every family that lives in grief. We will remember the fire and ash, the last phone calls, the funerals of the children.” – George Bush
